Patricia "Tricia" Nixon-Cox (born February 21, 1946) is the first daughter of the 37th U.S. President Richard M. Nixon and First Lady Patricia Nixon.

As opposed to her younger sister, Julie Nixon Eisenhower, Cox performed more of a ceremonial role during her father's political career, accompanying him to many campaign stops and, after his presidential inauguration, state trips around the world.


Cox attended Finch College in Manhattan, New York, a since-closed women's college best known as a "Finishing School" for affluent young women. At her graduation on June 14, 1968, her father served as a special guest speaker.[1]

Marriage and professional activities

Cox married Harvard law student Edward Finch Cox in a Rose Garden ceremony on June 12, 1971.[2] The wedding was described in Life magazine as "akin to American royalty".

She became a very private citizen and mother, staying home to care for her son, Christopher Nixon Cox, born in March 1979. She lives a quiet life as the wife of a corporate attorney, living just off Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. She serves on the boards of many medical-research institutions, as well as the Richard Nixon Foundation at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum and its adjunct, The Nixon Center in Washington, D.C.
